Heat stroke is a ...: Medical emergency characterized by a core body temp.> 105 degrees. If u suspect someone of having heat stroke call 911. Try to move the person to an air- conditioned area or at least the shade . Ice packs or cooling in cold / water is best while waiting for help.A person suffering from heat stroke may be unconscious and is @ risk for brain injury and organ failure...
